Weekly Crestview concerts please patrons, expose up-and-coming musicians

Published: Friday, July 25, 2014 at 06:13 PM.

Past performers have included violinist Meagan Jackson, a Crestview High School student saxophone quartet and a local dulcimer band. 

Dreaden, who coordinates the Music at the Library performances and art or cultural exhibits, said the more mellow performances are most popular.

“When we had a louder, vocal performance, that was not appreciated,” she said. “We do have patrons who are trying to get work done on the computers.”

“I like it,” Rocky Bayou Christian School rising senior Ian Kampert said. “A lot of people use the library as a place to study and music helps people remember what they studied.”

PLEASANT SURPRISE

Some patrons attend the concerts specifically to hear a performer or to enjoy a particular instrument, Dreaden said.

“People are also just pleasantly surprised in the evening when they walk in and hear the music,” she said.
